Circus of the Dead

A once thriving town called Doomsville was slowly moving into depression and since every other town around them had the economic funds to advance the town of Doomsville was left to fend for themselves. Since money was running out as well as jobs the townspeople started robbing and killing each other to survive in the depressed town. It was every man for himself and friends became enemies very quickly.

The only entertainment the town of Doomsville had was the circus which brought in the majority of the towns money, but since the owner died while he was home trying to enjoy a quiet evening, turned quickly into a deadly one because one of his neighbors broke into his home looking for food and money. The circus owner wasn’t the sharing type so he was ordered to get on his knees and still wouldn’t give in so the neighbor put the end of the cold shotgun barrel against his face and blew his head off his shoulders.

The town’s cemetery was running out of places to bury their dead so graves had to be dug up and coffins were stacked on top of one another as a solution.

A businessman by the name of Jack Wilson who was staying at a motel in Doomsville paid a visit to the run down circus which brought back wonderful memories as a child when he used to go to the circus on a regular basis in his hometown. He was saddened to see it going to ruin so he had this brainstorm of an idea that he would invest the majority of the money he had set back for early retirement, and bring this gem back to life once again, and save the town from total destruction but he had no idea what he was getting himself into.

Jack tried to find the owner to see if he would sell the abandoned circus to him but was told the owner was dead and that the town of Doomsville was flat broke and if he wanted it take it. Jack didn’t hesitate on jumping to the chance to bring back a childhood memory he long for as an adult but his dream would be shattered when a Witch crossed his path.

After a few months of hard work and thousands of dollars Jack poured into the run down circus his dream became a short lived reality. Jack was excited that the circus was no longer a memory of a forgotten past, but as he walked the grounds of the circus he said “Something is missing, oh my, there are no circus performers, if I don’t get some performers soon, I’m doomed and so is this circus. Surely, that shouldn’t be a problem,” but Jack was unaware that all the performers that worked at the circus were all buried at the cemetery.

Jack was upset with himself for not planning things out a little better but he was in too deep and the money that he used from his early retirement account was spent on bringing the Doomsville circus back from the dead so Jack had no other funds to hire any performers for the circus. Jack felt like crap and went inside the Big Top tent and sat on the vacant bleachers looking around saying to himself “What am I going to do?”

Jack bent over and put his hands on his face tearing up and prayed for a miracle but the miracle he was about to get wasn’t from the heavens above but from the depths of hell instead.

All of a sudden Jack heard a voice tell him his prayers were answered. Jack raised up and wiped the tears from his face and there standing directly in front of the bleachers where he was sitting at was a Witch dressed all in black from head to toe. Jack said “You’re a Witch! What could you possibly do for this problem that I am facing at this moment?” “More than you’ll ever know,” laughed the Witch. “Do you want me to help you or not?” asked the Witch. “Yes, I need help very desperately and if I have to give you the deed to my house I will,” said Jack in a desperate voice.

“I don’t need anything you have to offer,” replied the Witch.

“Okay, well let’s get the party started!” said Jack in a happy voice.

Jack felt his prayers were answered but he was in for a big surprise.

The Witch said some words Jack had no idea what they meant and then she vanished and one by one Jack’s circus performers started entering the tent and Jack said “What in the hell is going on here you crazy Witch? They’re all dead!”

Then the Witch was hovering over the top of Jack as he sat frozen in fear as the dead circus performers the Witch conjured up from the Doomsville cemetery were coming his way. The Witched laughed and said “You wanted circus performers and you got them, so what if they’re all dead at least now you’ll be able to get your circus up and running.”

Jack got off of the bleachers and tried to escape from all the dead circus performers but he was surrounded with nowhere to go. The Witch was laughing hysterically as the dead circus performers got closer and closer until Jack fell to the ground and the dead circus performers tore Jack’s body to shreds.

Jack should have known that a town called Doomsville was bad news but his mind was too set on bringing a dead circus to life and living out his childhood fantasy that he was unaware that it would cost him his life in the end. Looks like Jack can just haunt the circus with the rest of the dead circus performers for all eternity.
